Re: Hard Dive upgrade beyond 250gb

*SNIP INSTRUCTIONS SNIP* Pro-tip when you do this, make sure you neither lose power on your device or have your hard drive crash. If either happens, you may kill your Archos 5. You'll keep getting an error when booting or trying to install any updates (NOK 207 or something similar. There's a thread...

Re: Cannot play video File is damaged or incomplete

I've had the issue as well a long while ago (so I don't remember exactly how I fixed it), but you did have the right idea at the start. It's to do with how the video is encoded then transferred. Even files downloaded which were encoded with the correct codecs failed and required re-encoding. Wikiped...

Replacing headphone jack

My headphone jack is busted. I've checked the solders and they seem to be good. The right headphones work, but the left do not. As well, when it is unplugged, it doesn't automatically go to speaker; it thinks there is a pair of headphones still plugged in. I've got a busted A5 that I can use for par...

Re: Archos 5 Not turning On

Hi, 2-years on from this discussion (sorry) - my Archos 5 HDD (250gb) has just died. That's why I'm late to this chat! It seems a fairly easy fix, using this guide, so I'm tempted to buy a 1tb HDD, and consider the crash to be a bit of good luck, rather than bad. Some discussions have suggested the...

Re: Archos 5 IMT hard drive and battery replacement

Hi there, I tried to follow the guide to install patched FW, but experienced some problems: I have an A5 IMT with a 320GB HDD, which seems to have 2 platters; so the values are some kind of strange: 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 38913 cylinders (instead of 19457 for the 160GB version) So the math "U...

It's likely trying to autosync your music at the same time as you're trying to add things manually to it. Check your autosync settings (my first guess). Not really sure what else could cause this though.

Re: Would you guys recommend purchasing this Archos 5?

Slow down lol :P Do you guys know if it's simple to upgrade the hard drive? On the Archos 70, I wouldn't know. I can't imagine it would be though. The 32GB is DEFINITELY not upgradeable; that sounds to me like flash memory (soldered on). The Archos 5 IT is not upgradeable though ... I'm 80% sure abo...

Re: How can I get my Archos 5 to connect to Windows Media Pl

Any chance you've changed the hard drive mode? That would be the first thing I'd check. You want it to be seen as a media device, not a hard drive. If that doesn't prove out, there's always hardware... cable, ports, etc... and finally, sometimes Windows' USB registry data for a particular device wi...

Re: Archos 5 music in hard drive folder, not album folder

Check the file's tags. They may have gotten erased/not transferred when the files were transferred to the Archos. This program should be able to allow you to fix them, if they are missing. It's (more likely) also possible the ARCLib got erased, so before checking tags, try this: Place your Archos 5 ...

Re: Anyone tried a 750Gb drive in an Archos 5?

Anyone got a list of 1TiB drives that will fit? Is there someone who fits them? Any 1TB drives that are 2.5" thick and use a SATA connector will very likely fit in there (though I cannot say if it will work, I haven't tried it). This is only possible on the 120GB/250GB A5's of course. The 60GB/3G m...

Re: Would you guys recommend purchasing this Archos 5?

most of the popular movie formats (mpeg/mp4/avi/mpg/divi/xvid/etc.) That shouldn't be a problem ;) With firmware 1.7.22 the Archos 5 IMT can view MKV files for HD content (though they may need some tweaking ...). It can play back mpeg, avi, mpg, divx, and xvid out of the box (I haven't tested MP4 b...

Re: Would you guys recommend purchasing this Archos 5?

The Archos 5 Internet Media Tablet is an older device; keep in mind that if it breaks the likelihood that you can get it fixed is not very high. With that said, it's great for high capacity music and video playing, as that's what I use it for and it works fine. You can bypass the lock screen, howeve...

Re: Old Archos 5 data

See here for the teardown guide for your device (I'm assuming you have an Archos 5 120/250GB device and not the 60/3G device). Since the drive is a laptop SATA drive (for 120/250GB device) you can probably put it into your computer and have it work. For the 60/3G device, you're probably going to nee...

Re: Why do some CDs jam at 10% when I try to sync them?

If it occurs on multiple machines, it's one of 2 things: the CDs are messed up (like scratched and stuff, try cleaning it well (see here: http://www.wikihow.com/Fix-a-Scratched-CD and try to sync again. The other thing (much less likely) is that on both computers you have a faulty CD drive. I'm will...

Re: firmware update help

It's possible the hard drive's got some weird sector that the firmware is trying to write to. You should, in theory, be able to restart the update if you turn it off. Try an older version, perhaps the same version on the unit. I'm bent on believing that there's a weird sector with the hard drive tho...
